There are times when we want to do things our own way because we feel that the way of God is not happening the way that we want it. However, we should not underplay the sovereignty of God. Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has become His counselor?” “Or who has first given to Him and it shall be repaid to him?” For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen (Romans 11:33-36).
A young man wanted to go for a job interview at all costs. he had to go! he had stayed at home forever and this was his chance to earn some money. He was so excited for the D-day. Unfortunately, on the D-day, his shoe couldn’t fit. He tried and tried, his shoe couldn’t fit and that was the only shoe he had. Oh! No! it was such a huge disappointment. Sadly, he couldn’t go. The next day, he received the news that the company he was due to attend the interview had an unfortunate disaster. The roof caved in and everybody who was there at the time of the interview died. Sometimes, when things are not happening the way we want it, he is preventing something disastrous from happening. He is saving our lives!
Christianity is a lifestyle with Christ. Christianity is not a means of achieving our bucket list and it is not a means of achieving our goal. However, whatever you want you may ask God in prayer and he answers your prayer according to his will (Philippians 4). When one is a Christian, there is a need to be totally submissive to God for his will to be done. We see things in a different way and we act accordingly but whatever happens to you as a Christian, you keep on holding on to Christ, and your faith is built in Christ that whatever happens to you, God is good. He is the one driving, not you. He sees the final picture that you don’t see. God is sovereign; allow his sovereignty over your life.
